The Library of Congress has added more than 3,000 photos to a new Flickr page in the hopes that viewers will tag the photos to help the library identify and sort them for the future. Some of the photos have missing information, so librarians are hoping that the public can help with filling in those gaps.

First a blog, now a Flickr page. It’s nice to see a library intended for the people (and Congress) using the Internet as a medium to reach out and ask for hope. If the experiment goes well, it would be nice to see additional photos made available.
